Intercropping Stokes Aster - Effect of Shade on Photosynthesis and Plant Morphology

Author(s): E. J. Callan and C. W. Kennedy

Month: Jul-Aug
Year: 1995

Publication Type: Article
Journal: Crop Science
Journal Link:
Volume: 35
Issue: 4
Pages: 1110-1115

Article Topic(s): Chemistry,Human Use,Light,Morphology
Research Setting(s): Agricultural

Species Referenced: Stokesia laevis (Stokes aster),


The photosynthetic characteristics of Stokesia laevis were assessed to determine the potential intercropping potential of this epoxy acid-producing species. The authors conclude that sufficient leaf matter could be produced at light intensity of at least 120 Ámol m-2 s-1 and as high as full sun conditions.
